Pear & Citrus Flash Pickle

Harvest Hero B shared her version of Amish Refrigerator Pickles and there were a big hit.  So we’ve re-imagined them this week using pears, apples, onion & citrus. 

These are very juicy pickles for a reason.  That juice is flavor gold.  Use it on salads of all sorts, vegetable, chicken, etc.  It’s a crunchy salad and a dressing in a jar!
